About John Ortiz

We are a family of beach lovers (especially my wife) who enjoy having a beach retreat that is easily accessible to San Francisco, San Jose, and the SF Bay area.

John Ortiz purchased this house in 2002

Why John Ortiz chose Half Moon Bay

We love this location because it is easy to get to, and it is next to the beach, bike trails, hiking trails and so many ocean activities. We also find the people in Half Moon Bay to be very friendly.

What makes this house unique

Here are 9 of our favorite Activiteis:

(1) Easy beach outings!

(2) Evening hot dog and marshmallow roasts on the beach

(3) Taking a run along the bluffs and returning along the beach collecting shells.

(4) Biking along the Coastal Trail up to Princeton by the Sea for a seafood meal at Sam's Chowder House or Barabara's Fishtrap (2 local Favorites)

(5) Biking or driving a few minutes to town for a Sunday morning chocolate croissant or Farmers Market (seasonal)

(6) Easy access to Coastal Repertory Live Theater

(7) Enjoying a romantic evening sunset on our beach at the end of our street

(8) Savoring a sunset glass of wine at the Ritz-Carlton hotel while listening to the bagpipers playing the sunset tunes

(9) A cozy nighttime fire in the living room listening to music with the sounds of waves crashing and occasional blares of the foghorns drifting through the windows

Wonderful family-friendly location

  • 5 of 5
We had a mid-week stay and enjoyed frequent walks on the beach, relaxing on the patio and poking around shops (walking distance) in nearby Half-Moon Bay! This newly remodeled home had all the comforts and even a great kitchen that was very thoughtfully provisioned. The Indian Summer weather prevailed! Thank you for opening your lovely home and giving our family a place to reconnect and enjoy one another.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed here while attending a wedding in Pescadero. As soon as my daughter and I walked in the door, we automatically, knew we were going to like it. Very clean, modern and has all the amenities you need. Everything was so well organized and neat. The walk to the beach in the morning, with coffee in hand was spectacular. It's such a short walk their and to the trails. We loved every minute of being there, just wish we could have stayed longer. We might just have to make a trip back there again soon. =)

Enjoyed a fabulous girls' weekend at this cute little house. Safe area, plenty of parking, only a stone's throw from the beach, and within walking distance from the main drag (though not a short walk). Had no trouble finding the house or getting in/out. Found lots of clean linens and kitchen items-- everything we needed to eat a few meals in. Loved the fire pit/chiminea in the backyard. Appreciated the binder of information the owner left for us. Great tips on where to go/eat and on how to work things around the house. Thank you!!

Perfect place for us

  • 5 of 5
We two couples needed a place to stay in Half Moon Bay while we were busy during the days with pelagic birding trips. Our wish was for a clean, quiet, and comfortable place to stay. This home was perfect. The owners clearly took pride in an immaculate, well-provisioned home for their guests. Although we did not use the yard, the back would be great for a family barbeque and play area for children. It's a very short walk to the beach on a quiet residential road. The only downside was there was just one bathroom for the 3 bedrooms, but it was not any difficulty for us. The owner was very prompt and thorough in responding to emails with questions we had before we came. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend this home. And if you would like to go birdwatching, contact Alvaro's Adventures!

Great family destination

  • 5 of 5
Great location and great place for a family to stay. We brought 3 little kids with us to this lovely home and enjoyed every minute. It had the perfect spaces inside to run around and play while being close enough to make it to the beach each day.

Wonderful home to stay in Half Moon Bay! Besides the home itself being beautiful, clean, and very modern (even down to the self closing drawers) it was also so close to the beach that I could hear the waves from my bedroom window at night. We had coffee every morning on the beach and a bonfire in the back yard fire pit every night. Highly recommend this place for anyone with or without kids in tow. It very comfortably fit 5 ladies on our annual trip and we all had our own beds! 3 of us in queen sizes! Book it!
